On a Lot Valley hillside, this individual Perigordian style chateau, set in 50 private acres has 9 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and features a balustrade L-shaped heated pool and domed Jacuzzi. There is also a 5 hole target golf course on site.
The Chateau Joncaises is set in attractive grounds, and with a cruise down the river lot included in all rentals this is the ideal way to enjoy the surrounding countryside. A large indoor sports complex can also be found within the Chateau Joncaises grounds.
15 years in the making (designed and built by the writer/artist owner), the romantic exterior is complimented by neo-classic and ornate interiors, with detailed gilded carvings and carved panelling. Ambiance of a bygone age is further reflected by works of art and antiques within the Chateau Joncaises.
